Last Look at Super Bowl Lines
After opening at even money, the spread quickly swung to the Eagles and settled at -1. This Super Bowl odd has remained steady for the most part. On Saturday, Philadelphia rose to -1½ but quickly came back down to -1. It will likely close on the Eagles as one-point favorites. There’s no need to wait any longer. Place your Super Bowl picks before it’s too late.
The projected total is at 51 with the over/under at -110 each. Like the spread, the total has stayed around 50 to 52. Most expect both squads to finish in the low-to-mid-20s. Kansas City is also even money outright, with Philadelphia priced at -120 on the moneyline.
There’s still a wide variety of Super Bowl props to look over. Expect quarterback Patrick Mahomes to carry the load for the Chiefs. His projected passing yard total has slowly increased and now sits at 293½. Look for another heavy dose of Philly’s rushing attack with quarterback Jalen Hurts’ project rushing yards at 50½ and running back Miles Sanders at 61½.
The Eagles’ projected sack total of 2½ could be the most important number to watch. Kansas City’s offensive line must fend off Philly’s pass rush, which is five sacks away from passing the 1984 Chicago Bears for the most sacks in one season.
Before making your Super Bowl predictions, let’s go over injuries.
Clean Bill of Health
It looks like both teams will nearly be at full strength. Perhaps the biggest update is the Chiefs’ wide receivers will be good to go. After exiting the AFC Championship, Kadarius Toney (ankle/hamstring) and JuJu Smith-Schuster knee) are good to go. Mahomes will have more wideouts to work with, which is much-needed against the Eagles’ cornerback duo of Darius Slay and James Bradberry.
Running back Jerick McKinnon (ankles), who is a major receiving threat, will also play. Cornerback L’Jarius Sneed (knee) is good to go after suffering an injury against the Cincinnati Bengals. Most importantly, Mahomes will play once again on his high ankle sprain. Following two weeks of rest, Mahomes’ mobility should look better. In fact, the sportsbook has his project rushing yards at 19½.
For the Eagles, right tackle Lane Johnson (groin) and slot cornerback Avonte Maddox (toe) were the only injury concerns. Johnson has played through a torn abductor and will protect Hurts once again. Maddox missed three consecutive games before the NFC Championship and will play his second consecutive game on Sunday.
Super Bowl 57 will have major implications for future NFL seasons. The Chiefs would officially become a dynasty with a win. If the Eagles win, they have a good chance of becoming the next dynasty backed by a young roster. Will Kansas City win its third Super Bowl, or will Philadelphia hoist its second Lombardi Trophy? Grab your popcorn – this will be a good one!
